What’s On Your Mind?

March 14, 2012

This is a unique post (well, they all are unique; Aren’t they?). This post is being composed using a program called “BloGTK 2.0,” running on VectorLinux-7 with the Xfce desktop. I am trying to use tools that do not require KDE to function, especially because Bloglio doesn’t run on this iteration of KDE. While I will try and build Bibletime here, I may end-up using Xiphos, which uses Gnome libraries. We’ll see what happens.

I’m categorizing this under Technobabble because I’m testing new software with this post.

Facebook asks this question, so, I thought I’d respond.

This is what’s on my mind:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 TIM 3:1-5, KJV)

You know it’s true. We all know that it’s true. It’s a description of modern society and the perverse culture we live in, and so long as we just live in it and do not become a part of it, we shall be preserved out of it before it’s judged.

From time to time, it’s nice to consider that there are others out there who live their lives subservient to God and his Word, and that, one day, we might have fellowship with them. But if not, it’s also good to remember that one person plus God is a majority and there will come a time for fellowship. If loneliness is the worse thing which should befall us, before the Lord comes for his Church, then we should consider ourselves fortunate above many others who suffer such terrible persecution; for it is to those that God has prepared special blessing.

Well, that’s what I posted on Facebook. There are so many professors who never give a second thought to what it is precisely that they believe.

What about you, dear reader? Have you considered your beliefs in light of what God has said? Self-examination is, not only a good idea, it’s a biblical-mandate.

Testing A New Client

April 30, 2011

Well, I’m at it again using a new piece of software called QTM. It’s a Qt4 program. Because this is just a bit of a test, this post won’t contain anything of significance. I’m just trying to see how well it works.
I was using a Qt4/KDE4 program called Bilbo Blogger (the name’s been changed to blogio or something like that) but it’s strong attachment to the KDE4 desktop makes it useless for me (you wouldn’t believe what I was doing in order to use it the little bit I did).

Well, let’s see if this will post. Okay?

Okay. The client posted the article but I had to come here to actually post it. Oh bother. Maybe I can do something about that later. New software is like that, at least it is with me.

A New Venue

July 16, 2008

Well, I’ve moved away from Blogger and the whole atom thing because the program for KDE, called Kblogger, won’t interface with KDE-3 properly.

The program, designed for KDE-4, has issues with KDEs wallet feature and the older KDE-3 version doesn’t support atom. So, having read how well WordPress’s Movable Type worked, I installed Gnome’s “drivel” blogging client, and after fiddling around with addresses, I think I’ve managed to get this thing working. Posting, of course, will tell the tale.

What has this do do with Dispensationalism and dispensational thoughts? Not much, really, but we dispensationalists don’t have a problem with using things in the world. After all, God gave us things to do, and writing about dispensationalism and rightly dividing the Word of God is one of those things He gave to me. Ergo, a small, stable tool to do the writing is needed. I hope this works !

Kblogger may not like me after all.

This is the third attempt at posting to my blog. I’m keeping it real short because the last two post attempts, not only didn’t post, but I did not keep copies of what I wrote. What a shame if something that appeared to be so useful should turn out to be hardly useful at all.

Success!

As you can see by the last post, kblogger works! One button-press and there’s a little program that blogs, and that’s all. Okay, enough for now; I have to pick up a bering for the jackshaft on my recumbent trike.

Trying A New Blogging Utility

May 27, 2008
Well, attempt #1 failed with not only no posting, but the program itself crashed. Let’s try again, shall we?

We’re testing out a blogging program for KDE4 today. It’s called “Kblogger” (of course), and it’s in alpha right now, so the results are going to be varied.

I’ve been looking for something that would facilitate quick entries like this; something that didn’t involve a major operation (which is why my blog here is so inactive).

So, let’s post this and see what comes up omn the other end (you, the reader’s end, that is).
